Details, Details

It doesn't look like anyone is moving in next door any time soon.  We hear things after dark sometimes, but that is probably NOT the new neighbours.  The house wrap makes a racket when the wind blows, but so far, we are not being too bothered by the newness/bigness next door.

Here on the home front, things have finally come together.  We reclaimed our kitchen over the weekend.  Things went from this three months ago:

to this:

to, TA DA, this!
Yes, there are still some details that have to be taken care of, like:  baseboards, kick plates, spice racks, knife racks, a soft-stop here and there.  AND, the too big and not-according-to-plans cupboard that was supposed to be a small, antique-looking shelf-thingy next to the new pass thru opening has to be removed and reworked. (How's that for a sentence full of made-up words?)

 Still, we are thrilled with the outcome.  I am beside myself with joy that it is
 in time for the arrival of family in just two more days.  Despite nightmares of it being Christmas Day at 4 pm. and me not having bought my turkey yet, I think we have made it.

Someone just couldn't stand the suspense and rushed the advent calendar just a tad.

We'll soon have "the stockings hung by the chimney with care" and the Wassail Bowl brimming with cheer.  Come on by, overlook the "details" and share the delight of the season with us.  We are

Very nice Rosemary! I'm so happy for you that they got it done in time! I'm sure the kitchen is now going to be the central point of your house. (as it should be)
Happy Holidays my friend!
